Awakening Primordial Wisdom: The Sadhana of Manjushri

When: May 5-6, June 2-3
Where: 1818 Dempster Street, Evanston, IL
Led by: Lopön Barbara Ryan



The practice of Manjushri is a skillful means to awaken our innate wisdom mind that sees the true nature of things as they are. In this practice, we call upon Manjushri, the very core embodiment of primordial wisdom, to help us sever the shoot of suffering and free us from the habitual patterns that bind us to a conceptual and confused mind caught in samsara.

Through her great kindness, Her Eminence Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche bestowed this profound practice upon the Ösel Ling sangha last summer and encouraged us to slowly study its richness and wisdom over a period of two weekend programs.

Lopön Barbara Ryan will be enabling this 2-weekend exploration during May and June. All are welcome to attend, including those were unable to be present for Rinpoche’s teachings. Attendance at both sessions is strongly encouraged.
